Knock Out Knee Pain


Do you experience knee pain when riding?  Knee pain is one of the most frequent complaints among cyclists.  Riding an ill-fitted bicycle will dramatically increase your chances of developing cycling knee problems. Making sure your bike fits your individual anatomy will go a long way in ensuring a pain-free adventure on the road.  Join our Bike Fit experts on Thursday, November 21 in the Fit Studio as they address the most common (and a few uncommon) causes of cycling knee pain and tips for preventing them.
